Blogging about beer may seem like all the fun in the world, until you attempt to describe the taste of a particular craft beer to a friend without also describing every other beer you’ve ever tasted. Although most people acquire a taste for beer, few acquire the skills necessary to effectively communicate the pros, cons, likes, dislikes, and intricacies of a single beer in relatable fashion. Below, I’ve compiled a list of the most unique, entertaining and educational blogs for all things noteworthy in the world of brewing.
Each of the following blogs is great for different reasons. Some authors write about exotic recipes, others about the scene and selection of new pubs that open in a particular town. All have definite strengths, so don’t get hung up on the numbers that precede their name; check them all out and decide which one ranks #1 based on your own taste and interest.

Don’t Drink Beer will have you hooked the minute you land on the homepage. This is also one of my favorite places to go for honest and clear beer reviews. Beers are rated on a scale of 1 (Death) to 100 (Alegasm); what’s not to love? Along with these concise ratings, one can click for a more detailed, lengthy review if he or she wants the dirty details on each featured pint. Each review is based on ASTMD: Appearance, Smell, Taste, Mouthfeel, and Drinkability. Be sure to take a peek at the charming video reviews as well!

Finalist for Saveur Magazine’s Best Original Recipes and author of The Craft Beer Cookbook, Jackie Dodd is a mastermind when it comes to pairing beer with food.
